Maintenance Reliability Excellence – Online Masterclass

Increasing availability, reliability and efficiency is becoming more and more of an essential factor for companies to remain competitive. Reducing cost, eliminating failure and improving safety, performance and worker morale are also key to ensuring that the organizations’ goals are met.

Salvo Global’s cutting edge workshop is based on pacesetting reliability best practices in equipment operation, maintenance and design that will enable participants to realign their thinking regarding maintenance and further improve on their reliability initiatives. The course will cover the main principles of RCM to help improve its implementation. Participants will recognise the need to further examine and align maintenance strategies to fit the current more demanding conditions while at the same time aligning themselves to the overall direction of the organization. Theories that will be presented will be supported and illustrated through a combination of real-world case studies and an extended hypothetical scenario that enables participants to easily incorporate RCM program insights, techniques and procedures into their organizations.

Top Learning Objectives

  • Learn how Reliability Centred Maintenance supports a Continuous Improvement programme, even in a changing environment
  • Appreciate how reliability principles can be applied to all types of assets and the entire life-cycle of assets
  • Understand why the process has been so successful in the most demanding maintenance environments over a long period, and why it is equally applicable for today’s equipment and challenges
